T.I.'s Tour Bus Too Flashy for Feds

T.I.'s Tour Bus Too Flashy for Feds

Officials say the rapper misled them as to his mode of transportation.

Published September 2, 2011

Less than 48 hours after his release from Arkansas' Forrest City Correctional Facility, T.I. is back in federal custody after reportedly trying to pull a fast one on prison officials.

According to TMZ, T.I. led prison officials to think that he'd be taking a discreet mode of transportation from the prison to the halfway house when in actuality the star chartered a luxury tour bus accompanied by an outfit of high-priced SUV's.

Although no illegal substances were found on the bus, it wasn't exactly the van that the rapper had previously indicated he would return to Atlanta in. The rapper is reportedly being held at a federal prison in Atlanta rather than the halfway house he reported to upon his release.

As previously reported, T.I. was released from the Arkansas prison on Wednesday [Aug. 31] after serving 10 months out of an 11 month sentence for a parole violation stemming from a Los Angeles drug arrest in 2010.
